Description

Budj Bim is a long dormant volcano. Budj Bim is the source of the Tyrendarra lava flow which extends over 50km to the southwest. It is central to the history of the Gunditjmara people. Budj Bim National Park (formerly Mount Eccles) is Victoria's first co-managed national park. The park is managed by Gunditjmara Traditional Owners and Parks Victoria. The park's tranquil crater lake and pleasant bushland surrounds make it a pleasant place for picnicking, camping and bushwalking. Nature trails follow the old crater rim. The campground lies in protected hollows between rocky ridges from lava flows approximately 250 metres from the crater rim. Toilets, water (untreated, natural supply), hot showers and ten shared fireplaces are provided. The picnic ground has two sheltered gas barbecues with tables, and an information shelter. The campground has campsites of various sizes, some suitable for small caravans and camper-trailers. Camp fees apply for all sites and bookings are required. A campsite can accommodate up to six people with provision for one vehicle per campsite . Site 3 is suitable for campers with disabilities and includes nearby access to toilets and washing facilities. Rangers regularly visit the campground and check camping permits. Advance bookings and payment are required year round.

Love this campground so much, easy walking tracks, cave to explore just a short walk, there are flush toilets and nice warm shower. Facilities are well look after. There are many wallabies and kangaroos especially early morning and late evening. We found a couple koalas on the trees and also possums. There are many birds as well. Importantly, this campground also has full history. If you love nature, quiet place, and wildlifes then check out this campground :) Please make sure to take all your rubbishes with you.

This is a nice campsite area with lovely facilities. Make sure you review your site size and recommended size vehicle use, before booking. There are only a few sites suitable for larger ( 19'6" to 22') caravans, choose wisely. When you get to the campsite numbers boards, park up and walk in to your site, to help plan your access or you may learn how to reverse very quickly. We got our 21'6"" van to beautiful site 19, but you will need the turn around area at end of track, so check track and access first.

Absolutely loved it. Mostly spacious sites (18 and 20 definitely for the smaller set up), well spaced. Great facilities and lots of wildlife. Walks all open and within walking distance of the campsites. Can't wait to come again.
